HAPPY BIRTHDAY S.C.

The final part of The Undertones series will have to wait another seven days. It’s my young brother’s 51st birthday today. I know he pops in here every day, firing up his laptop while soaking up the sun in Florida, and so as a wee bit of surprise for him I’ve put together an 80s mix tape jammed with stuff I know he likes.

mp3 : Various – Songs for a Handsome Devil

TRACKLIST

Speed Your Love To Me (extended) – Simple Minds
Sit Down – James
Kiss This Thing Goodbye – Del Amitri
Something’s Gotten Hold of My Heart – Marc Almond/Gene Pitney
Rattlesnakes – Lloyd Cole & The Commotions
What Difference Does It Make? – The Smiths
Prisoner of Love – Spear of Destiny

And, believe it or not, the whole thing comes in at 60 mins and 00 seconds – more by chance than design!!

Have a great day young fella and I’ll see you doing your dad dancing to all of this when you come over in the summer.

  1. Happy Birthday to SC! And may I say, JC, thats not a bad mixtape at all….Speed Your Love To Me is one of those songs that works SO well opening a set. And including Love And Money and HIpsway just makes me smile!

  2. He lives not too far from Echorich…he’s up in Oviedo. Hopefully I’ll get over to visit him in the next couple of years and try and throw in a night in Tampa….

  3. Happy birthday SC! Enjoy your time and the superb mixtape JC made. And JC, Tampa and Ibor City is always a place to visit. I had a couple of great evenings with live music there a few month ago.
